The late terrible battle at Pittsburg Land ing, similar in many respects as it was, to the ever memorable conflict between Wellington and the great Napoleon, is frequently men tioned as the Waterloo of our civil war. The number of troops engaged, the incalculable in terests depending upon the issue, the desper ate character ot the struggle, the awful car nage, the opportune appearance of Buell when the rebel Chief, as he supposed, had at last the "Lincoln Mercenaries" witliiu his grasp, the filial defeat and rout of the rebels—all have a parallel in tho battle of Waterloo, fought nearly fifty years ngo. The figures of the forces engaged at I'ittburg Landing, and number killed and wounded have been compared with those of the greatest battles of the present century. At Waterloo there were 130,000 men engaged before the arrival of Mueller. Of these 70,000 were under Na poleon and 00,000 under Wellington. The loss was about 50,000. At Dorodino there were &">(),000 men in the fight; the loss was nearly 1)0,000. At Solferilio there were 400,000 men engaged, and the total loss was 33,000. At Magenta there were 300,000 men engaged, of whom a total loss of nearly 23,000 was re ported. The battle of l'ittsburg Landing was a con test for the honor and peace of a whole natiou —for the integrity of a government, the pride anil glory of freemen throughout the world— for the vindication and preservation of those great principles upon which has been erected the beautiful structure of our National Union. It was, a conflict between the blackest and most atrocious treason, and instead of thrones and the safety of Kings and Princes, we won the morale of human liberty. We fought the good fight ami God of buttles gave us the vic tory. — Portland. Times. - - FEATUHF.S OK THE GUKAT BATTLE.— Enough is known of the terrible conflict at l'ittsburg Landing to establish the fact that the fight was rather an interchange of hard knocks than a display of military skill. Grant is culpable for having neglected ordinary "pre cautions to guard against surprise, although aware of the proximity of a superior enemy, and for having no defenses to serve as a par tial cover for his army until Buell came up. On the other hand, Beauregard, having been prevented froin moving in time by the heavy rains, could not hope to accomplish more than crippling his enemy, after tho fierce struggle of Sunday, and he might have withdrawn with honor and profit before the Federal forces got into positiou for renewing the conflict on Monday. lie had failed to rout and destroy the army of Grant, though he had inflicted a stunning blow, captured thirty -six guns, and made whole regiments prisoners. Pride, rath er than prudence, induced the rebel generals to remain and coutinue the battle, which re sulted in the loss of the artillery he had cap tured niel nearly all of his own guns, together with ihmisandsoi men killed or disabled. He might have retreated a prudent victor; be stayed t«» be beaten, crippled and driven froin the field where he had exulted in triumph. Both commanders have great power in holding men under fire, setting that example of brav ery which inspires the enthusiasm of the sold iers, and leads them to display the same con tempt of death; and it is worthy of note that Generals who are capable of planning a cam paign or strategic movements, oft en fail because they lark thia influence over men engaged in actual conflict. Marshal Hoult, otherwise one of Napoleon's beat Generals, famished a re markable example of this defect, j The information received from the War De partment says that Giant pursued the euwny as far as " his previous orders would permit." This seems to bare been limited to the point —five mile from the Landing —where Prentiss was attacked. It may be the object of the large force at I'ittaburg to hold Beauregard in check at Coriuth, while our Mississippi col umn of forty thousand men, under Gen. Pope, marches down to assail Memphis in the rear. If this surmise shall prove correct, Halleck's strategy will be vindicated, and attack on Grant will appear to have been an i unavailing sacrifice of life.— Sacramento i Union. ty The frieudahip of two women is always a plot Against the third. Letter from Governor Stanford. The following correspondence has been placed in our hands for publication : HAN FKA.M IWO, April 6, 'O2. Honorable Leland Stanford—Sir: .S.mo discussion, and no little difference of opinion, have arisen among those who have near at heart the preservation of our Union, aud the conservance of the Republican party, through which chiefly that Union is assured, as to the propriety aud expediency of railing a conven tion this year, for the nomination of a Super intendent of Public instruction, and as a neces sary adjunct aud authoritive declaration of the view taken by the |iarty in this State, of the mighty principles which now struggle for as cendeucy in the public miud, and at the bar ot' public opinion. By many it is argued that, as but ouc gen eral State oflice is to be filled at the coming election, it will be undesirable to impose an unnecesary burthen upon our political friends to call a convention of the party to make a nomination for that office, when concert of ac tion, equally affective, can be had through the State Central Committee, ulready existing. In this view at ordinary and usual times, we might concur, without doubt or question. Under existing circumstances, however, we are impressed with the conviction that a differ ent course should be pursued, and that we ought again to refer to the people for an ex plicit and unmistakable enunciation of their views of patriotic, political aud party princi ples and policy. Hoping you might feel at liberty to favor us with your opinion as to which course would the more couducc to the public good,we remain respectfully your obedient servants. J. F. CIIELLIS, G. 11. WARREN, J. F. HOUGHTON, U. I', AVERY. WM. 11. WEEKS, SAX FRANCISCO, April 9, 1802. To Messrs. J. F. Cliellis, G. K. Warren, J. F. Houghton, B. I'. Avery and W. 11. Weeks; I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of Apiil 6th, asking my views in rclatiou "to the propriety and expediency of calling a State Convention this year for the nominal ion of a Superintenilent of I'uhlic In struction, and as a necessary adjunct, atul au thorative declaration of the view taken by the party in this State of the mighfy principles which now struggle for ascendency in the pub lic mind and nt the bur of public opinion. Having given to the subject matter of your communication as inuch consideration us the iiressnre of official and other duties will allow, herewith submit the priuciplo reasons in my mind for the conclusion to which 1 have ar rived. The great problem of our times to be solved for weal or woo to future generations, is hu man freedom and man's political ability to govern himself. It is for the solution of these questions that the soil of America now resounds with the thread of armed warriors, and is crimsoned with the blood of their chil dren. Can there be a doubt but that all those who are prepared to respond affirmatively to these questions should be united? that the support which they feel willing to give to these unquestioned prece»>s, should be as prac tical as possible? Animated by this spirit, aud appreciating the majesty and overwhelm ing importance of the "mighty principles" struggling for ascendency, we behold the ablest inen in the North, of the old Democratic party coming up manfully, cordially and unequivo cally to the support of the National Adminis tration. We even behold such becoming closely identified with the Administration, by accepting the office of I'rivy Counsellor of him who is its acknowledged head. Could the houorable and popular Secretary of War accept the position lie occupies if entertaining views of hostility to the policy of the Admin istration, or would he counsel or take part in auy views that were not fully matured aud in dorsed by its chief? Is it to be expect-d, then, thattlose who approve his course should refuse to take part witn such as are iu full and entire accord with that Administration of which the Secretary of War ia so efficient a portion? To me it seems clear, that there ought to be on the part of the royal people of Califor nia, an expression of their views on the great questions of the dnv, that involve not only the right of mau to govern himself, but also the perpetuity of our Union, and of our govern mental freedom; and tbey should at the same time proclaim their views aa to the causes which have produced our present difficulties, and tbeir opinions as to the ultima re disposi tion of those causes, so far as they may be subject to disposal, under our common Con stitution. The people of California, understanding this ' matter as they do, will not. I am sure, even sanction any compromise with treason; nor will tbey, knowing the baneful influence of slavery, ever consent to yield to it one iota that the Constitution does not compel. For my part, I am glad to avow myself, at all times, aa tne uncompromising foe of human slavery in every form. And this brings me to the consideration of a subject about which, it

seems to me, the people should be cousulted, about which there should be a direct expres sion of their views. I allude to the settlement among us of the Asiatic races. By our Con stitution tbey cannot become citiaeus ; by our laws they are incapacitated from testifying in Courts of justice against citizens or against those who may become such, 'litis state of things induces oppression, of which tbey an I the victims, «a»d M tWy «re entirely cot off from lb« ript of niricv, tkry are denied among #• tat benefit* of freedom, and an: com pel >t to Mi in part tbe bitter fruits of op preseion and slavery. It is not humane—it ia n<>t in nesstdsnc* with the principles of jus tice and of tight—that ve should invite or encourage At immigration of a people regard ed mi unfavorably by our fundamental law. Aud while tbia in the rase, it ia my belief that we t>h<>ttl4 endeavor by all honorable meane ' tn atop tho bnman tide that ia setting from ; the western to the eastern shore ot the Pacific. ' This end may lie attained without harsbip, by giving timely notice to those who may de wire to come among us, aud, at the same time, without nppn-esing those who are already here. While our laws regarded the Asiatics as in ferior, we should nut forget that, to nearly the extent that they Nettle among us aud perforin 1 labor, they exclude, aud withdraw induce ' tneuts for, the immigration of those who would ibe most desirable citizens. The great induce ment for imiiiigrttion is labor and its reward. If, then, it in acknowledged that the laborer is worthy of his hire, and that ho shall enjoy the fruits of his labor, it is undvniable that to neorlv the extent that we admit a class who 1 may be callen cheap laborers, do we exclude the higher and more enterprising and labor creating class. There is no argument advanced in favor of cheap labor, by a class who aro denied the right of citizenship aud the equal benefits of the laws, and who are compelled to bear bur then of taxation not bourneby those who make the laws for their guidance, that lias not ever been advanced in favor of slavery, and that was not advanced at the time wlieu the insti tution that has resulted in such direful conse quences was first plained upon the free soil of | America, and that has not been advanced to maintain it. Let us not, because at the present time the demand for labor seems to be greater than the supply to bo had from free white citizens, be false to the great and enobling principles which should actuate us—those principles of free labor and of free society for which wo now Btrive in our efforts to uphold the Government and to preserve the Union. We know not to what extent thejimmigration front China may be carried with the present, and probably to bo increased facilities for its continuance, but we do know that about one sixth of the population of our States is of that class, notwithstanding the great difficulties and discouragements they have had to encounter in order to make their way to a foreign shore, and among a people of a different race. 1 deem it necessary for a party, in order to preserve its organization, and conserve the in terests of the people, to advance the standard •if its principles with the advancing spirit of the age, which can alone be done by tno fre quent counsels oi those who are authorized to mould its doctrines in accordance with that spirit. l'arty organizations are the usual and only affective way whereby the peonle can give ex pression to their political faith, and give as surance of their determination to maintain it. The Republican organization in this State, seems to me to be the only available oue at this time whereby the Union sentiment, which should not be dissipated among the conflicting interests of different and inefficient organiza tions, inny have full expression. Its morale is unimpaired—its principles are democratic, and it recognizes the people as the great foun tain head of power, while it insists that it 18 for tlie welfare of the people thai the govern ment is instituted. The Democratic organi zation, as a medium for the expression of roy alty and devotion to the Union, is out of the question. In this State there needs a qualifi cation to he added to the party title of Demo crat, to determine as to the royal or treasona ble sympathies of the individual assuming that political designation. I must mistake the people if they haveaught to do with a party that has outlived it* prin ciples, and but for the fortunate awakening of the nation, at almost the last moment, would have outlived the government, of which it was then possessed, and over which it bad so long held control. Hie true ami loyal men of our country, heretofore known as Democrata, have abundant examples before tbcm where men high in honor as In station, have waived all party predilections and associated with tba Republican organisation, to give their eotire energies towards supporting tie policy of the National Administration; and for this the names of Stanton and Holt and Johnwm and INckereoo will IM* held in revenue*as longas the pillars of the Temple of Freedom, which they are assisting to pnsrm, are allowed to stand in all their grand propwtMM and beau tiful symmetry. The Republican party in this Btai*. fully committed as it is, by association and choice, to the support of tbe'Natiofial Administration, cannot be expected to [*l itself in that post turn «bervby it may not bo irtogniaed aa a portiou of lb? national party that is to give to the Administration an efficient snpport. < i ganizations effective as this has bm, and ■ the magnitude to which this baa grow, are not the offspring of a day; are lirswgbt alxtut by a vast expenditure of time. «f talent and of labor. The march of sncb • patty 1 should be upward and onward,and the masses ! who coinjMiM' it should lose no opportunity to ' wcet in council to exchange ideas upon the i great questions that agitate the land, j To ibis e;td I would avail myself the U»- publicau party organisation, because it appenta to Is* the muet effective means of combining and rendering practical the Union approval | sentiment of tb e people. There®** 1 I desire I that a State Convention may be callsd. and I that tbecall may be so broad as to invito the participation of all who, witbont considers tio« « post parly proclivities, are laral cili tens, and who indorse the prinit National Administration in its policy to maintain the Government and the Union at al haaarda. Most respectfully, yonr obedient servant, LELAND STANFORD. Maryland nnd Jeff. Davis In the Maryland Honse ot Delrgatsa, a few daya since, Mr. Johnson of Baltimore eonnty submitted the following : KRAMBLK AND BRSOLI'TION ON TBI SI'B JBCT OF TUB COT'BsB THB STATS WILL niSl-B IN THB FBBSBNT BBBBLUON. WHEREAS, Jefferson Davis, a pretended President of a pretended Confederacy, in a paper styled an inaugural, delivered by him in Richmond, Virginia, on the 22d instant, has repeated an assertion often recklessly ut tered in public bodies of the so-called Confed erates States, that "Maryland, already united to us by hallowed memories snd material in terests, will, when able to speak with uns'lHed voice, unite her destiny to the Southand whereas, it is due to the intelligence, patriot ism and good name of our people that Buch assertion be at once repudiated by their rep resentatives here assembled ; therefore, be it Resolved, by the General Assembly of Mary land, That Buch assertion is an unfounded and gross calumny upon the people of the State, who sincerely lamenting the madness and self inflicted misfortunes of our brethren of tho south, acting under a delusion caused by the arts of the aspiring and criminal ambition of a few designing men, are but admonished, by the sad condition of such brethern.of the fatal results sure to follow from the course which they have pursued, and are more and more convinced of the obligation, alike of interest and of duty, to abide with undying attach ment to tho Union devised for us by our fathers, as absolutely necessary to our social and political happiness, and the preservation of the very liberty which they fought and bled to achievo for us. Which were road the first, and by special order, two thirds concurring, a second time, and passed by ayes 59, noes 5. TREATY OF RECIPROCITY. —The British Colonist, in a recent article advocating a treaty of reciprocity with the United States, sayß: It cannot bo said that that the advantage would bo ono aided. On the contrary, reci procity would be ail equal advantage to Cali fornia or Oregon with ourselves. If the San Francisco consumers can get our coal a dollar cheaper a ton, or our sawed lumber.2o per cent., less a thousand feet, or other articles at an equally reduced rate, it requires no further argument to convice th«m that they are inter ested in promoting reciprocity, and interested iu a way that every one will feel it in his pocket. These commodoties we can supply San Francisco cheaper than they can be had elsewhere on this coast. Consequently the demand would steadily increase. As the de mand increased, so would the consumption of California and Oregon produce increase here; and the development of our country atimulate the industry of theirs. THB VITALITY OF MOSSES. —Though fro zen hard under the snow wreaths of winter for several months, the vitality of mosses is unimpaired; and though subjected to the scorching rays of the summer's sun, they con tinue green and unblighted. Even when thoroughly dissicated into i brown nnshapen mass, that almost crumbles into dust wuen touched by the hand, they revive under the influence of the genial shower, become as green as an emerald, every pellucid leaf serv ing as a tiny mirror on which to catch the stray sunbeams. Specimens dried and pressed in the herbarium for half a century have been resuscitated on the application of moist ure, and the seed procured from their capsules has readily germinated. They grow freely in Ibe Arctic regions, when then is* long twilight of six months' duration, and they luxuriate in the daialing uninterrupted fight of the tropica.—Mmwtn'i F—tmmtm Jrtm tie Page •/ Nmtmre.

For many long and sleep* less nights, when sll besides my thoughts were at rest, I have wrestled with the conscious ness of approaching death, until at last it has forced itself upon my mind; and although to you and to others it might now seem like ner vous imaginations of a girl, yet, dear F it is so t Many weary hours have I passed in the endeavor to reconcile myself to leaving you, whom I love so well, and this bright world of sunshine and beauty ; and hard in deed is it to struggle on silently and alone with the sure conviction that I am about to leave all forever, and ro down alone into the dark valley!

Well do I know the spot, dear F , where you will lay me. Often have we stood by the place, and as we watched the mellow sunset as it glanced in quivering flashes through the leaves, and bur nished the grassy mounds around us with stripes of gold, each perhaps has thought that one of us would come alone, and whichever it might be, your name would be on the stone. But we loved the spot; and I know you'll love it none the less when you see the same quiet sun-light linger and play among the grass that grows over your Mary's grave.
